At the party, held at the Shinola store on 14th Street in northwest D.C., the company’s Chief Marketing Officer and “Live at 9:30” co-creator and executive producer previewed clips from the first episode of the show and were joined by several VIPs, including Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (D-Mich.) and R&B singer Eric Benét .

“Live at 9:30”,  of which Shinola is a sponsor, was taped at the world-famous 9:30 Club in Washington and features musical performances by a diverse array of artists, including Ben HarperGarbage, Pusha TLeon Bridges and Tove Lo.

Producers say the 9:30 Club is the most-attended music club of its size in the world – a 1200-person venue where world-famous artists have started their careers, refined their sounds, and played legendary shows.

Each cinematic, one-hour episode of “Live At 9:30” will feature a collection of acts from different genres, interspersed with interviews, short films, and comedic bits. The filming was done unobtrusively with more than a dozen cameras, including hidden GoPros and an airborne cable-cam.

The 12-episode show will air on public television stations nationwide this summer and fall and will also be available for streaming on Amazon Prime .
